“Great hotel”
Reviewed June 15, 2012

Other than the old style CRT TV's (which I hear are getting updated soon) this is a great hotel. The staff we dealt with where fantastic, both day and night. Restaurant was also of high standard. I'll give it the full 5 rating.

Stopped here on way down to Cornwall and found it very pleasant and ideally situated with good staff. Premier Inns are great for a short break.

Room Tip: Keep an eye on website for offers.

Have stayed here several times and have never received the same level of customer service in other Premier Inns, warm welcome (even though we arrived at 11pm) and friendly staff who are attentive but not intrusive. Only down side is that this appears one of the older PI's so decor is worn, tv is the old model and not a funky flat screen but the basics are spot on, clean, tidy and the bedding and beds are absolutely what you should expect from a PI. I stay in them all the time as they are my preferred accommodation when traveling for work and pleasure and I have come to rely on them maintaining a standard that other similar hoteliers often fall far short of. Overall, nice location, excellent staff but tired decor but I will still stay again.

Room Tip: Stayed on two occasions as a family, one four year old and one baby and have been located on the gro...

We stopped off here enroute to Plymouth, after negotiating one of the worst roundabouts in Christendom we finally found it. Good room, old fashioned tv but that's no hardship. Breakfast usual Beefeater but no complaints, would certainly stop again. Usual excellent reception staff.

Easily found off both the M5 and the A38 this Premier Inn is in good hands. Very good staff in the Inn and the Beefeater where the usual fare is cooked to your liking, well presented and wholly enjoyable. Although central Taunton is a driver's nightmare it is relatively easy to drive away in all directions leaving the town centre for walkers.
The promise of a good night's sleep is undoubted and staff are always ready to help with replenishment of items in the rooms if required. There is ample room in the car park.
Just one slight disappointment (which I have mentioned to HO previously) is the lack of a direct link from hotel to restaurant, so one can get a bit wet moving between the two. However, that is a very small point for all but the disabled. Otherwise facilities for the disabled are good.

Room Tip: There are two levels and staff will readily advise on personal preferences.

A great place to stay with great food at great prices.

Travelled from the north to Taunton for activities and arrived very happy with the room quality.

Would return no problem if the Eden project was a bit better :(

We got exactly what we expected. No frills, but a clean, cheap hotel with secure parking and polite staff.
